¼ of all homicides in the united states are the result of domestic violence


When a domestic partner has access to a firearm a partner is 5 times as likely to be killed in the 3 years leading up to an intimate partner homicide, police have visited an average of 6 times.


3 out of 4 women murdered by a partner are stalked first – BrightHouse gives out dozens of cameras a year to battle stalking.


Not all abuse involves violence – emotional and financial issues can cause abuse. Call BrightHouse or come to the office at 125 W. 2nd. Office number 620-663-2522. Advocates can talk to you about all types of situations.
